BARREN EARTH Announce New Album, ‘A Complex Of Cages’ Due March 30
Release Debut Single "Further Down"
Finnish progressive death metal supergroup, Barren Earth, have released the brand new single “Further Down”, taken off their upcoming album A Complex Of Cages, out via Century Media Records on March 30!
Listen to “Further Down”:
Vocalist Jón Aldará comments:
For me, this truly feels like a transcendental album for us. The songwriting dynamics have changed quite drastically since ‘On Lonely Towers’, and even though every song is quite unmistakably Barren Earth, the album as a whole brings us towards something stranger.
Lyrically, the album follows a theme that fits the instability of the music, namely the isolating aspect of suffering from different mental issues such as manic depression, psychopathy and agoraphobia.”
Bassist Oppu adds:
Like Barren Earth’s previous works, the album’s material varies from straightforward standards to experimental opuses. Still, the red line is there, and every song asserts its place in the whole. Brutal death metal, artsy prog rock, pompous melodies with dozens of layers… This music has been crafted without any external pressure, radiating utter spiritual liberation.
Production-wise I see A Complex of Cages as an improved version of Barren Earth, thanks to V. Santura, who supervised the album making process and let us concentrate solely on composing, arranging and performing.”
“Further Down” is available as a digital single on all download and streaming platforms and as an Instant Grat Track with all digital pre-orders. Reserve your copy now at https://BarrenEarth.lnk.to/AComplexOfCages
